Spacelite Recovers

Modern Spacelite Recovers are meant to last. Traditionally recovers are done using staples to hold the material onto the frame, and then sewn. The staples will inevitably fall out, and quickly require the need for a recover. Modern recovers use glue to ensure the material will stay on the frame, and then sewn for additional security. We can also custom build the actual frames according to your desired radius.
